Gestus

Although these two Queensland based artists, Yavuz Erkan and Alix Perry, are engaging with different ideas I am interested in their use of self-portraiture and the interaction with objects. These absurd and yet playful gestures reveal a tension between the self and society highlighting the construction of gender.
